Hi Sara,

You posted additional questions yesterday (12/25), at the following question page: http://www.justanswer.com/writing-homework/7flv3-1-likely-purpose-essay.html
I could not reply to you there, because the questions were moved to the Writing Homework category (not one of my categories). Also, we are only supposed to answer one question or question set per post. I would appreciate if you would give a positive rating for the question set I did answer for you at the above link. For the other quizzes that you posted, please repost them separately.

Thanks!
